An Open Letter To WordPress

About the new changes that are continually happening now on WP, here is a good post that saved me the bother! I have written and written until now they just stopped answering. I HATE the beep stuff — stupid and not easier and less functional. I threw a hissy fit over the new admin bar and the constant changing of names. I asked them to add to the bar, not take away and change things . . . AND, I wrote one letter where I substituted lemon for admin bar and peanut for webmaster and so aon and it was a hoot but not answered because, like their stupid innovations, they are not understandable. I want to write not play with WP.

Fish Of Gold

Dear WordPress,

I am loath to write yet another letter to you, since I typically prefer to spend my time writing actual blog posts, but I’ve been bitching on Twitter and in your forums to no avail, so maybe you’ll pay attention to a blog post. It’s not likely, but hey, you never know.

Please, stop. Just put down whatever you’re working on and stop with the futzing. You have been tinkering under my hood long enough and you know what? None of the “improvements” you’ve made are actually improvements.

Below, you will find explanations as to why your improvements aren’t improvements sorted conveniently by feature.

    I “liked” this post, Katie, because clearly some folks are having issues. However, personally, I’m not feeling any stress at all. I simply don’t use the new editor because I like the old one, and never have problems with some of the other points stated. Maybe it’s because my theme, “The Columnist,” is so simple. In fact, it’s a piece of cake to use and all I need. Anyhow, good luck getting your issues solved, if you have some.


    • I think that the fear is that what begins as an option often becomes the only option, and the beep beep boop is really so bad! Actually, after my hissy fit when they removed the edit button they returned it — I don’t know if it was my hissy fit but they did!


I love hearing from visitors!
